With September 11th just around the corner, it is time for RI Primary voters to make up their mind. I’m sure you have been sitting up half the night wondering which candidate has the strongest voice for our environment. Look no further.
Clean Water Action is proud to announce that, after vetting the candidates who seek the green stamp of approval, we have a list of those that we believe to be valuable allies. Whether your concerns are about sustainable funding for public transportation, keeping the ban on incineration in place, preserving and extending the life of our landfill, investing in water infrastructure or, more simply, protecting the beauty of Narragansett Bay and our endless coastline, consider these candidates when going to the poll next week.
